The Leagle Beagle imposter and Root are obviously joined at the hip.
Two more impersonations.
I wish the imposter could get a bit more creative.
Too much of the same old/same old is getting monotonous.

To "analretentivevoltowner "....
Be careful--Luvvy took you seriously the first time.
That was funny.
This time he's gonna be ticked.
Doesn't like it when he's led astray.

Just calm down and relax. This is a forum about the Volt. No need to let your emotions dictate your mind thought. Simply put, concentrate on the Volt and not Love Volt.

Prius is the top trade for the Volt.
I'd buy the Mitsubishi, before i would buy either of them.....it seem's the most cost-efficient, and isn't that the main point?

Root, I have no idea what you're attempting to prove with your phoney altruism, but I can assure you, you are indeed wasting your time.
Frankly, your efforts at God knows what are having no effect on me whatsoever.
I simply intend to continue as I always have.
Toodles.

You responded to a joke!
Honestly, do you think I am that stupid that I didn't know it? Really? You honestly think I don't know what "analretentivevoltowner wrote" means?

Wow, you fell for the fact that I responded to a hater who AT LEAST doesn't try to hide his lies by pretending to know some phantom Volt owner to swears he made a mistake by buying the car.

Come on dude. Is that the best you can do? Was that your "aha" moment? Pretty pathetic.

BTW I failed to mention, we had a power failure at the ski lodge. We just plugged in the vote and powered the whole place for the weekend using only a half gallon of gas. What a vehicle!
Very cool.

Did I miss something? Which Mitsubishi? If you are talking about the 2014 i-MiEV, I can understand your point.

But all electric cars are directly connected to a second car. Tesla included. So, efficiency of an all electric must include the efficiency of that second car. That way it is a more fair comparison to the gas / electric Volt.

Otherwise, you are right.

Don't get me wrong. I had 3 Mitsubishi cars. 2 Colts and a Plymouth Arrow pick-up. I really liked that little pick-up. The Colts were pretty good. At least they were reliable, which is much more than I could say for Datsun and Toyota of the day.

I saw one of these on the El Camino today. I must say, it was turning heads in a very, very major way. I'm sure everybody thought it was a Ferrari. I did when I saw it from the back. I noticed the Vette emblem but couldn't believe my eyes.. When I saw it from the side, it still looked like a Ferrari, but the "gill" slit gave it away.



21 - car related posts in the past 9 pages for me.
0 - for the poo.

And I'm not including the two about Mitsubishi. A fine product.

The poo man thinks I can't read name tags. It was a little bit of sarcasm poo. You know, dry humor. You don't even have that kind of humor. But I did notice that Justin suddenly disappeared.

His writing style and use of the English language gave "him" away. I know that it was Poo-man-2.

And there is no main point about electric cars. Electric cars are .... cars. Even electric car owners have their different desires. All the way from the Tesla Roadster or S all the way down to the Zenn.

Everybody has their druthers. Most folks can accept that.

Quite the imagination!
Or is it just another senior moment?
And who said you can't read name tags?
I sure didn't
Can't wait to see what gets dreamed up next!

In your case, I don't just think it.
But I do think "analretentivevoltowner " is appropriate.

Why should folks pay any attention whatsoever to a self appointed arbiter who sees himself as the one and only?
Especially when that self appointed arbiter consistently violates his own advice.
That would be tantamount to inviting the fox into the hen house.
Like I said earlier, i pay little attention to your phoney altruism.

Because you are better. Lead by example and be strong. Lighten up and celebrate the Volt and for heaven's sake, be nice. Show your caring side.

From what i have studied, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is not only built in the USA(Illinois), but is the most efficient and least costly......seem's the best choice, from several perspectives.....Hard to understand the virtue in the most expensive, car that saves money...lol....Perhap's close to the same mindset in so many magazines that celebrate the fastest and least fuel efficient, during a period, when gas prices are breaching $4 a gallon.....
